It is with great pleasure that I release to you THE MACHINE …. well The Round 16 part of it. This spreadsheet feeds to a master spreadsheets that logs the overall progress of its effectiveness.


I very much enjoyed tinkering with this over the early part of the season and while I have broken even after 9 weeks of punting, I feel other game factors have become more influencial on game results and I am no longer confident in its output. Having said that, I am still placing all of its suggested weekly bets.

If you are a lover of excel, I am sure that you will enjoy pulling apart its pieces and I look forward to some healthy Machine discussion below – Feel free to make suggestions for Version 2!

At the very least, I am sure that you will find some of the data I used each week very interesting, and most probably useful. Maybe this will inspire you to create your own punting Machine?

Yours in fantasy football statistcal heaven,

Peter Higginbotham.

    You're a ripper MJ – really enjoying your participation mate. Make that coffee a strong one. I cant figure out all Higgo's sums and that. He bloody amazes me that man. A monument to the education system of our fine state

Strewth Higgo! Love the tick boxes. Just unpicking you line formula, simple but solid. Can see how it does tend to favor expansion teams but love the way you used the sum of each team average to balance out the breakeven factor. At first I thought the Melbourne flogging it anticipates was odd but it does make sense when you look at the big outs this week.

Inspiring stuff mate. Thanks.
